How long have you been doing your craft?: I started my etsy last March but I have been making things since I was very little.
When did you start selling & what inspired you to start selling?: I decided to start making things because I loved looking at home decor magazines and books, and I saw a lot of things in them that I thought I could make. I got out my sketchbook and started making things!
